Solar lanterns for harvest time

Greetings my Lenders!

Hoping and believing you are all doing great.

We are fine and the business is expanding and transforming more lives.

Materials for making natural skin care products

Dear Mercy,

You're very welcome. Below, are a couple of articles about biodegradable plastics.

Only the plant-based kind actually are truly biodegradable, and unfortunately that kind apparently is not yet available for containers for skin-care products, only apparently for foods, so far:

[environment/2009/04/do-biodegradable-plastics-really-work/]
That's an older article, but this much newer article also seems to suggest that not much progress has been made yet in getting *truly* biodegradable plastics into the market:
[biodegradable-plastic-algae-bacteria]

It seems glass still is a much better alternative, especially if it's not thrown away, but instead is recycled (or, even better, simply washed out and reused). Because of the high cost to the environment and to life on the planet of most of the current alternatives, I hope eventually reusable glass containers would be economically viable for you (and your customers), if it isn't yet.

Thank you for being willing to consider. :)

Best wishes,
Laurie

Pineapple farming

Hi Gideon,
Would it be possible for you to do a “rent to own” deal instead of just renting a piece of property for pineapples? This way a portion of the rent you pay can be used as a down payment to purchase land outright. If you are doing all of the work to plant and maintain the pineapple plants perhaps this would be a better business option. With Regards, Margaret
